It is in the breaking news sidebar!
He went on to imply that we were correct in removing Saddam because it "...sends a message. Screw with the United States of America and we will bitch-slap you into the middle of next month."
Anyone else hear this? Clarification?
Tonight, America and the world are a much safer because Saddam and his sons are GONE.
Hillary is running in 2004.
I'm seriously PO'd at the press (including FoxNews) for refusing to acknowledge the great work being done by our young Americans helping Iraq get back on its feet. Each day our team makes progress in medical care, infrastructure, recreational facilities, government systems, security, and public relations.
But all we hear is about the death (by hitmen) of noble Americans. We aren't even reminded that they are noble. We aren't reminded that thugs are responsible.
IMO, this is "Against the Troops" rather than "Support the Troops." If you focus on the deaths without giving them MEANING IN CONTEXT, then you are robbing families of pride, consolation, and direction when they think of their loved ones. This is true whether the soldier is one of the deaths or is among the living.
The greatest family support in the world for deployed troops is to demonstrate the nobility of their efforts.
The media comes across like it hates soldiers, soldier families, and the United States of America.

...and this weekend's winner is: (drum roll)
Oh good. You provided me with the perfect segue so I can post my handiwork again.
It does seem FNC has climbed aboard the "quagmire in Iraq" bandwagon. I've started to use my mute button with them this week because it seemed like all I was hearing was "Quagmire, guerrilla warfare in Iraq, Kobe, Laci, Tony Blair, quagmire, 3rd ID upset, guerrilla warfare, Kobe, quagmire. And, in other news, 16 words, did Bush lie, quagmire. FOX NEWS ALERT! QUAGMIRE!"
Uh oh. Mute off. Ann Coulter on Hannity & Colmes right now. LOL
The President of the United States arguably makes approximately two dozen speeches in his career- one or two inaugural speeches;four or eight State of the Union Addresses; one or two major policy speeches and the odd declaration of war or emergency interspersed with communiques on Foreign Tours.
Every word in every one of those speeches is part of his legacy from Washington's admonition to "beware entangling foreign alliances" to Lincoln's Gettysburg address to Eisenhower's "beware the military-industrial complex".
Defining phrases can be found for almost every President: Kennedy-"Ich bin ein Berliner"; Reagan-"Mr. Gorbachav, tear down this wall";FDR-"A day that will live in infamy";even Jimmy Carter's infamous "malaise speech".
Into this honorable lineage enters the first President of the 21st Century- a man who willfully refuses to correctly pronounce "Nuclear" in every public venue in which he appears; a man whose signature is on "Campaign Finance Reform" Legislation-designed to UnConstitutionally muzzle a certain type of unpopular speech.
Saddam Hussein remains at large. Weapons of Mass Destruction remain just as dangerous as they were before the Iraq invasion and Al Qaeda waits to strike again.
When exactly will this President and the Washington establishment honor their oath to Preserve, Protect and Defend the Constitution of the United States?
Nero fiddled while Rome burned, the United States Kakistocracy twiddles while the Constitution smolders.
The Democrats want to punish President Bush. If he does not do anything wrong, they will invent something.
It is not working, and they can not figure out why. Should we tell them, or let them continue destroying themselves?
Hint, you guys no longer own the gatekeeper to information.
Someone once said that a lie would be halfway around the world before the truth got out of bed. Not anymore. Put a lie out today, and there are somewhere someplace awake to counter it.
There was a time the left could say one thing at one place and something else somewhere else, but those times are over. Everything they say is being recorded, cataloged, and available for their own words to condemn themselves. What a great time to be alive.
My father, from the Rio Grande Valley, said "nucular" all his life. He was one of the smartest people I have ever known. It didn't seem to bother my mother, who was an English teacher and eventually a dean at a university.
So, get over it.
A salute to you, sir. And thank you for your comments, which I heartily agree with.
I am a jelly donut?
